28 kilometers to be precise. I wish I get that visibility when I'll be in Shenzhen and Hong Kong later this year.

Actually, I could also clearly see Macau's skyline from the airport today.

Please don't make a post for each individual photo when you can post them all in one. Thanks!

Why is that? on Galouloumi.com I had been instructed the exact opposite. If I post 10 pictures in one post and that I am the only one in doing so on the same page, won't we end up with an extremely long page, taking long time to load for slow connections ?

One pic per post threads are specifically identified as such (see here:http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=504) Outside of that there's no concrete rule. You're right. If you are posting tons of pics, it's probably best to break them up into 5s (my personal rule and similar to what Faisal Shourov did above your post). But individual pics is also probably overkill. So find the right balance between a long post of bandwidth bulging pics or one where a whole page is devoted to just 20 pictures, which can definitely clog things up in its own right.

It's impossible to like your own post, it's a signature...

I don't think people are still on 56k dial-up connections these days so we have to do a photo a post when they come from the same author in the same batch. You don't want this series of posts to get falsely picked up for spamming.
